Question Answered: 

You will need to enter the radio security code. You may have the info in your owners manual booklet, or you may have to go to your dealer to get the code. Don't try to enter a code if you don't know it, some radios will lock you out if you try to enter the wrong code a few times.

Question Answered: 

If the oil light wasn't coming on before the oil change, make sure you used the correct oil type. Using an oil different of a different viscosity than the manufacturer recommended oil can cause the light to come on. If the oil gauge is not reading at all, then you may have an electrical problem and the oil pressure may be OK. Make sure the wire to the oil pressure switch didn't become disconnected during the oil change.
